Reis named as a possible successor for Kramer at Schalke

Bild reports that Thomas Reis could replace Frank Kramer as Schalke 04 coach.
Thomas Reis is ready to take over as Schalke 04 coach if Frank Kramer loses his job, according to Bild.

Kramer's job is hanging by a thread after last night's 5-1 DFB-Pokal defeat against Hoffenheim, which was their fifth straight competitive loss.

Speaking after the game, Schalke sporting director Rouven Schröder refused to give any guarantees about Kramer's future at Veltins-Arena.

Reis was heavily linked with Schalke in the summer, but ended up staying at VfL Bochum, who relieved him of his duties in September.

Per Bild, Reis and Schalke agreed a contract worth €1.4 million per year including add-ons at the time.
